Alexandria, VA (January 9, 2014)—Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Opens third party site disclosure in a new window announces receipt of a grant from JPMorgan Chase & Co. that will help create three regional military spouse symposia in 2014, beginning in San Antonio on February 12. The second will be in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and the third location is under consideration.
The grant enables the expansion of MOAA's seven-year initiative to conduct an all-day professional-development conference titled "Keeping a Career on the Move®."

"MOAA is extremely appreciative of JPMorgan Chase's generosity that allows us to expand our spouse symposia program," MOAA President Vice Adm. Norb Ryan said. "We know this program delivers information and support to military spouses who want to create, continue or enhance a career in this mobile lifestyle. MOAA is known for providing personal, face-to-face support to all military spouses, and this grant helps us deliver our award-winning program across the country."
"JPMorgan Chase is committed to hiring and retaining military spouses from all armed services, and we are proud to partner with MOAA to create better career opportunities for them," said Maureen Casey, head of military and veterans affairs at JPMorgan Chase. "We understand the challenges military spouses face as they try to balance careers with the unique demands of military life, and we want to help position them for success."
"Keeping a Career on the Move®" is designed to inform, empower and inspire military spouses seeking to return to school or reenter the workforce.
